trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled the scene. at present the manhunt continues. the police are looking for a younger brother and a possible accomplice. let's bring in nbc justice correspondent, pete williams. this is a quickly developing situation. how many people are the police looking for right now? >> i think they're not sure. i think we can say probably three. dzhokah tsarnaev, the person who is the man with the white hat and the marathon bombin
. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley scare and you see another makeshift emmoral. so sadly these at that are common building up behind us. t
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
to the success to the law enforcement investigation. it will be equally important as the city works to reclaim and restore boylston street. we have been working closely with business owners to near the plaza and opening up a mobile city hall close to the area for visitors to have fast a access to the city. also our team has been in communication with the victims and the families who continue to work as we move towards opening the area of boston for our public once again. i want to say to my team behind me, thank you for doing a great job. last week or so, all the agencies and since friday have been working overtime to make sure that the plan works to reestablish boylston street. they have been working under all the plans. thank you. >> heather: you've been listening to a live news conference. the mayor talking about a five-step plan now to reopen boylston street, perhaps the most famous street in america. the area specifically affected when this bombing happened last monday at the boston marathon. let's go to adam housley who is still standing by live for us. i understand you were just in the
of military vehicles, buses of police and motorcycles and other armed law enforcement officers. all congregating in the staging area behind me across from the mall in a parking lot. it looked like they were preparing for some sort of confrontation if not an assault. there were a lot of sirens going on. that activity seems to have abat abated. they think they know where the suspect is. clearly there was a pretty good sense here watching this that they seemed to be preparing for what could be a very violent confrontation with the suspect or suspects. shortly about a couple of hours ago now, governor patrick came out and we were told that the entire city of boston was under lockdown. that seemed to escalate the concerns. we don't know right now as we have been told, they believe they have the suspect cornered in an area and the second suspect is on this amtrak train. then the threat, a largered in threat may have abated, but you have to keep in mind they found the ied in the city of boston that has to raise the question are there more out there they have to be concerned about? even if
verbally. he's in the intensive care unit of beth israel hospital here. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case saying dzhokhar tsarnaev was shot in the side of the neck. unclear whether that came during friday night's takedown of him when he was captured or shootout he and his brother had thursday night into friday morning with police in the streets of watertown. right now no charges were filed today. we heard rumblings there may be charges filed today. ended up not being the case, don. maybe in the next couple of days. >> all right. let's talk about the bombs. you have learned something new, something about where they came from, brian. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti citing a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation says the current thinking right now, don, is the two suspects bought the bomb components locally. somewhere here in the boston area. but that they got the guns from somewhere else. this official emphasizing that the gun traces are under way right now. and so that part of the investigation is continu
devastation. it started out as a law enforcement investigation, but as authorities said last night that is likely to change. >> this will be a combined, federal, state and lookal effort. it will be an ongoing investigation, it is a criminal investigation that has the potential -- is a potential terrorist investigation. >> our next news briefing is just minutes away at the bottom of the hour and cnbc will carry at least part of that live. it is going include massachusetts governor deval patrick and the fbi special agent in charge who you just heard of, massachusetts, two u.s. senators are both at the westin hotel behind me and a large amount of media from around the world. everyone asked me the same question, which is why? david? >> thank you very much, scott cohn reporting, of course, from boston. after a very rough monday which sought dow plunge by almost 266 points since the biggest drop in november. futures are on the rebound. better than expected from coca-cola and johnson & johnson, but on the flipside, target warning that its first quarter earnings citing expectations and cit
about the zoning laws in texas? >> stephanie: lack of government regulation! they had like a zillion times more -- than you're allowed to have and how many feet from a school! >> a school and a nursing home! that shouldn't happen! >> stephanie: i can't remember the number. i'll get to it. hello! that's rand paul's libertarian pair dice. fertilizer plant with however many tons you want. >> near an active fault zone. >> stephanie: hmm? anyway so obviously lots of breaking news left and right. you were saying the latest i guess is that the -- dzhokhar. i feel like i'm in the cone head sketch. dzhokhar. he is responding to written questions. he's not talking yet. >> he has a wound in their neck. they're not sure if it was self-inflicted. a tube down his neck but he can write. so he is answering questions. >> stephanie: so no word about what we're finding out or not so far. but anyway, so far from dzhokhar. sorry. i'm a little punchy from last week. >> that was a help of a news newsweek. >> like the onion said, cheese us this week. >> stephanie: really? what else now. speaking of what els
on speculation. letting law enforcement do its job. this is very hard to do. we all want the answers. no one wants those answers more than family members but it's more important to get this right rather than lunch towards the first possible answer. i'm proud of people that they've shown that patience. >> michael: it's worth underscoring that. thank you for mentioning that. remember it took two years until we learned that eric rudolph was responsible for the bombing in atlanta. we're lucky to have tim walsh from mit security studies program. thank you for coming to the war room. >>> all washington could talk about were immigration and guns. how quickly things can change. still these are potentially game-changing bills and they come down to the wire. we'll have the latest on the political front right here after the break. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm g
at advaircopd.com. bill: breaking news now on the fox news channel. fox news reporting now a second law enforcement official saying that the fbi is in fact talking about whether or not to release images from video of one or possibly two suspects in the boston bombings. at the moment this is what we can report. there is a vocal contingency within the fbi discussing, sometimes debating or even possibly arguing against releasing such photos, because as the official puts it, there is still a lot of groundwork done, quote, under the radar. continuing with the report, officials say in one video you can quote, pretty clearly see the man's face and it is rather compelling stuff. we're getting that information with us here in boston this morning. there is no briefing scheduled. it was on yesterday. it was off. it was on again. it was off again. late last night boston police tweeted on their twitter feed there would be a statement from the fbi at 8:00 p.m. eastern time. ten minutes later, the boston police department said, that statement has now been canceled. clearly there is internal debate. ji
. there's a lot going on today. first, the latest out of boston. federal law enforcement officials say the bombs that killed three people and wounded at least 176 17 critically, at the finish line of monday's marathon were explosives made from pressure cookers filled with metal and ball bearings and carried in backpacks. the fbi and homeland security are circulating photos of the device remains to figure out where the components came from. no word yet on what may have triggered those blasts. and so far no clue as to who's responsible or why. security has been high at the funeral of margaret thatcher. the former british prime minister funeral being held today at st. paul's cathedral in london. more than 2,000 mourners representing at least 170 countries turned out to pay respects to before britain's first female prime minister known as the iron lady. queen elizabeth and her husband prince phillip attended along with henry kissinger dick cheney and former house speaker newt gingrich. thatcher suffered a stroke on april 8th and died at the age of 87. she will be cremated and buried privat
days in the country's recent history. in 1993, a 51-day standoff between federal law enforcement and branch davidian leader david koresh ended with 80 dead including 25 children when koresh refused to surrender peacefully. on the same day two years later, timothy mcveigh bombed the alfred murrah federal building in oklahoma city killing 168 including 19 children in the building's day care center. >> that attack was specifically designed as payback for the government's role in waco two years earlier. >> reporter: for those who hate america and know something of its history, monday had particular meaning. in massachusetts monday was a state holiday. patriots day, commemorating the first shots fired in the american revolution. during the battles of lexington and concord fought near boston in 1775. >> the real patriots day is april 19th. that is the date that counts for people on the extreme right in the united states. as it happens, massachusetts celebrates patriots' day on the third monday of every -- of the month. >> reporter: but for every conspiracy theory about domestic extremi
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
five years of professional journalism, i decided to hang it up and go back to law school. the good news? i saved enough to pay for my first year all through the stock market. i would i would never have been able to make enough had i just kept it in a saving account. and by the way, let's be clear, an index fund would have made me nothing, nothing at all. if you want to go and get started, go small. invest in what you know. research it intensely. back then, i got old data from the public library. now information is free, ubiquitous. including up to the minute financials, analyst presentations, conference calls that i tell ur are musts if you're going to know what you are doing. simple? no. lucrative? you bet it is. kiann in new york. >> caller: hi, jim-bo. >> yo. >> caller: general question for you. what could be considered a good rate of return on investment and does it differ depending on asset class? >> i think you're measured against bonds. if you can get something, say, twice the risk free rate and get a good tax rate on it, in other words, like you have a reduced tax on the dividen
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
and therefore the younger brother is going to be able to relay that to law enforcement or are they going to continue these sort of dark patches where we have questions that will never be answered. >> last about the latest incident. two men in canada that apparently wanted to derail a train from canada probably headed to the u.s. they are identified as having support from al qaeda in iran. >> right. >> a lot of threads here. do they make sense to you? >> they don't make sense to me. that doesn't mean they aren't true. but as we've learned this week. as we've learned in the past, we should always be cautious about the early reports. one thing the canadian mounted police said there is no state sponsor. even if there is an al qaeda link it's not iran supporting attack. and it makes no sense what iran is doing. we're in negotiations. they're about to have a presidential campaign. this is not the way iran tens to operate. of course al qaeda and injury. she vows to dance again and run in the boston marathon. this is what she had to say to cnn's anderson cooper. >> i landed and was -- sort of cl
bureaucracy. the way they arranged the law, they have few other options. >> the faa unlike other agencies is personnel heavy. in the end you can not avoid, when 70% of your operating budget is personnel you can not avoid when the cuts are deep as they are in the sequester the kind of actions that are taken, these furloughs. that is the unfortunate fact of arbitrary across-the-board cuts like this. >> but the airline folks, the folks who represent the airlines, say basically when you talk about a $16 billion annual budget at the faa you can find other ways to cut. therefore they have filed a suit. they're calling for a 30-day stay on all of this to find better ways instead of randomly cutting air traffic controllers. the way this works some 15,000 air traffic controllers nationwide, everyone has to take one day off every couple weeks. back to you. david: rich edson, in d.c. rich, thanks very much. liz: betting on the great outdoors? mgm resorts international where the company wants you to stay indoors in the casino, certainly is. the chairman and ceo is telling us why they're hoping a bit
but the quick law enforcement response underscored their effort to stop track and stop the people responsible. >> i encourage everyone to have a heightened state of vigilance here in the boston area. [ sirens] >> reporter: fbi agents went to a local hospital to question a 20-year-old saudi college student who was injured in the blast but authorities stressed he is not considered a suspect. >> there are people that we are talking to but there is no suspect at brigham and women's hospital. >> reporter: so far the videos of the blast are providing some of the most important clues, authorities say the white smoke seen after the detonation indicates small bombs with a simple low velocity explosive mixture, not military grade. but still sophisticated enough to detonate about 15 seconds apart. >> something just blew up. >> they may not have had the resources as we've seen in other bomb attacks, but they knew how to make the bomb go boom. >> reporter: experts say the large pieces of metal as seen here in the air suggest the bombs might have been concealed in a mailbox or trash barrel as one witness d
things are temporary and they'll go away, we hope. >> my goal is i want to go back to law school and become a lawyer for bank of america. this is the most remarkable quarter where j.p. morgan beat them in credit card and pnc beats them in all lines, but in the end we got them here at the conference call because i just don't believe too could be that sluggish or that merrill could have such bad trading. there is a code here and i don't have it yet. i just don't believe that bank of america is this bad. i just don't think it's that much of an outlook. >> the stock is down, not a terrible move dunn. there was some litigation expense that perhaps was unexpected related to countrywide. the story in part has been let's release those litigation reserves that they've been building up, but not as much as had been hoped. that's still out there. >> you're taking a billion in costs and shouldn't you explore the earnings line? >> that's a lot of cost to take out, but you have to give credit, at least that they have been successful in doing what they said they would when it comes to costs. >>
by will you -- must include the contributions of the transgendered? by law. you will have to have pages on transgendered contributions. people who were crossed over sex, or dressed in the other sex. clothing. isn't that absurd? isn't that totalitarian? i thought the purpose of the textbook was to tell the truth, not make groups feel good. but as i point out in the book, leftism is overwhelmingly rooted in feelings. >> host: dennis prager is the author. "still the best hope" is the name of his recent best seller. louis from florida, you're on the air. you're talking with dennis prager. >> caller: i'd like to ask mr. prayinger and his ilk what he just said about truth, why should people believe the bible when that's the biggest novel ever written? who believes the earth is 5,000 years old? how can you follow a book that tells you the world is 5,000 years old and hisclass commentary about the christian schools and the seminary, how does he say something like that and he wants to be honest? i know this man is a right winger, and he wouldn't fifth credit to anybody, but my main question is,
hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they might have missed, what they should have seen, and what they should have made of it as this case is unfolding. you know, there are questions about the older brother tamerlan's travels to russia, what he did and who he met with. those are the sorts of questions that are following up. in the meantime, here in the uni
in the world will be looking to its intelligence and law enforcement agencies for any clue as to whether or not this has some foreign connection. >> secretary rice president obama in his statement yesterday said how little the government knows, how little he know we don't know who did this why it was planned or executed foreign or domestic. why say that? does the president know that people are listening to every word he said including those who might be responsible? >> of course. the president wants to reassure the american people that the government is on the trail so to speak and that justice will be done. the president has to be careful. he has to be sure that he has got as much information as he can about what is now a forensic effort to understand how this attack unfolded. so i am not surprised that very little has been said yet. this is obviously an act of terror. it was obviously an effort to maim as many individuals, and as many innocent citizens as possible. but the president has to be very careful, not to give out information prematurely here and it's entirel

a continued heightened law enforcement presence as the city tries to come to grips with a violent attack in the heart of boston. and that was katie davis there with that report. now london's metropolitan police are reviewing security plans for this sunday's marathon after the explosion in boston. the minister told bbc the best way to show solidarity with boston is to continue the race as the french president has stepped up security around public buildings in this country and raised the threat level to red. >>> speaking earlier, it was said the long lasting impact of terrorist attacks are low. >> research into terrorist incidents over many, many years, their economic impact, their direct economic impact tends to be very, very small, indeed. a lot of good research done on this in israel. what i would say is yes, of course, very often the economic cost is largely in how we react. what new measures are put in place to counter this sort of thing often i'm afraid a certain amount of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. i'm afraid we live in a world where terrorism incidents are
. foreign investment law was passed in november of last year. that was a real smile tone for foreigners, especially western companies who i think for the past year to about 18 months have been seeing this as the last frontier market in asia. and the sanctions, although exactly as you rightly put out, there are other things that still need to be done in the country from a political point of view. definitely the lifting of sanctions is a very strong signal to the international community. >> so if you're in europe right thou looking at this opportunity in myanmar, now the sanctions have been lifted. i imagine there are still some pretty intense headwinds. what might those be? >> well, i think one thing that you still have to bear in mind is that while the eu sanctions may have been lifted, there is still what we call a designated lift that the u.s. still has in place. and under that, there are a whole list of business necessary myanmar that they can't do business with. and many eu companies, also for reputational reasons, they may not want to engage with those businesses. so that's still s
consideration. amazon already collects sales tax. the current law requires them to collect the sales tax for online purchases if they have a physical presence in the state where the consumer lives. if the legislation passes, though, online retailers with revenues of more than a million dollars a year could be faced with the task of keeping up with 10,000 different tax jurisdictions. even though all of us are supposed to claim uncollected sales tax on the filings, i bet most of us don't. >> 10,000 tax jurisdictions. that's ridiculous. >> it's a lot. thanks a lot. airlines, railroads and the all important apple. all those reports out today. and the earnings squad standing by to break it down. this can save you hundreds of dollars on your cell phone blil. why millions around the world are kicking it when the ceo of kik messenger joins us live. the ocean gets warmer. the peruvian anchovy harvest suffers. it raises the price of fishmeal, cattle feed and beef. bny mellon turns insights like these into powerful investment strategies. for a university endowment. it funds a marine biologist... wh
